Tractor Trailer Crash in Delaware County

Written By Editor on 8/29/23 | 8/29/23

DELHI — Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that on the morning of August 27th, 2023, Delaware County 911 received call from the operator of tractor trailer stating that he had been involved in a motor vehicle accident. The operator of the tractor-trailer stated that the tractor-trailer had traveled off the roadway and had rolled over on State Highway 23 in the Town of Kortright 

Delaware County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the scene along with members of the Davenport Fire Department, Stamford Fire Department, Bovina Fire Department, Headwaters EMS and NYS DEC Spill Response team. 

Upon arrival on the scene, Deputies made contact with the operator of tractor-trailer, Michael Rowe, age 61, of Sidney, NY.  Rowe reported that while operating the tractor-trailer, he left the right-hand side of the roadway and was unable to re-gain control, resulting in the truck traveling down a steep embankment.  The trailer portion subsequently became detached from the tractor resulting in the tanker/trailer rolling several times before coming to rest at the bottom of the embankment. 

Sheriff DuMond reported that Rowe was transported by Headwaters EMS to Fox Hospital for minor injuries and released.  The investigation into the crash is continuing and tickets are pending.
